Is it safe to use these at night? We plan on going to the French Quarter and will be staying in Broadmoor. We will be parked at the street car when we go back to the Airbnb.

I take the streetcar at all hours, there´s really no problem. Before Katrina Broadmoor was still iffy, but I know it´s gotten a lot better. If you´re telling me that you will be driving from the streetcar stop (would this be around Napoleon Avenue?) to your AirBnB, then I would say that you have absolutely nothing to worry about. If you were getting off around there and stumbling all the way back home at 3 AM, well, that might be giving papaya (making youself an easy target) as we say in Colombia.

I don´t have a great deal of experience with the revamped bus system, whose fleet changed completely and whose routes have often been consolidated since Katrina. The streetcar is the best bet I think. They run I believe on the hour (or is it 30 mins?) after midnight, but service is 24/7.

Thanks you for the response. The area would be by Jefferson Ave. I would park my car around Jefferson Ave and St Charles Avenue and board there.

How about the 7th Ward by St Anthony's street?

Beckycat,

My general answer is No, you wouldn't be safe on public transport at night. When I was in high school and college, the buses ran on time, were brightly lit, and weren't packed with lowlifes. None of those conditions apply now. The streetcar on St. Charles might be okay, but I'm not sure about the other lines, when they exist at all.

Seventh Ward, St. Anthony Street? NOOO.
